What impressed you positively?

"The campus is amazing. It is very small and intimate, which I love. Out of all of my interviews, it is the only campus on which I felt comfortable and ready to spend the next four years. Lenoa Edwards is waaaay cool and so very nice. It's also nice to have the medical center right on campus. Plus, it's SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!!!!!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was treated very badly during my interview. The woman who was conducting my interview tried really hard to make me feel and look stupid. Some of the questions she asked me were absurd...no medical school candidate should have to answer those types of questions. She would begin a lot of the questions with: "I know you probably don't know much about this..." It was a very very very uncomfortable experience. And she made me late for my second interview with the medical student. But it's all good, I got in anyway! I interviewed December 2nd and I just found out on Jan. 25th...so be prepared to wait a little while for their decision." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I didn't have to leave so early to get there. And that the people who called and confirmed their interviews right away got to interview at better times and with better people (my interview was very late in the afternoon)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Please see above. If your first interview is in the medical center, give yourself an extra few minutes to find the room...it can be difficult. If you don't know where you're supposed to be, just ask. Everyone is so nice there. I hope this helps!" Report Response
